But inside the expensive house in Fallbrook, California, was a very unhappy family. …

Martin had heard that Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres were close friends, so he wrote dozens of handwritten letters to Bieber, sending them to DeGeneres’ Studio in the hope that DeGeneres would pass them on to the star. …

Ever since I graduated from high school I have been super lazy. I used to read a lot during my teenage years, but in my early Twenties, reading a book, and doing some important work was a struggle. I preferred to play video games and binge-watch my favorite TV shows instead.

So what went wrong, why was I so unmotivated to do hard work, even though I knew it will make me money and improve my quality of life. The answer to that is dopamine.

See, whenever we do something that’s fun, that’s gonna give us a reward we want more of it, that’s because your brain produces more dopamine every time you do those rewarding activities. …

Imagine you're at work, and then your boss suddenly shows up and starts shooting at you. That was the horrific last moments of Richard Conklin.

“You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.” — Vernon Howard

I have been living a minimalist lifestyle ever since the Covid-19 lockdown. The whole situation forced me to make use of what I have, become more self-sufficient, and try to boost my productivity at home. Since being a minimalist, my life has changed in many ways, I now feel less overwhelmed, I’m more driven to do daily tasks, and I have more time to do the things that I love.

Adopting a minimalists lifestyle is not as hard as you think. You just have to have a positive mindset, and be determined to change how you live your day to day life. …
